Salad "Stolichny" with chicken

Holidays are the brightest time when you want to enjoy life in all its manifestations and try something new! Especially for our favorite readers, famous restaurateur Aram Mnatsakanov prepared an irreproachable recipe. To refuse to itself in pleasure to try so appetizing dish – it is impermissible! Salad "Stolichny" – a real legend of domestic culinary history! Even under Alexander II there was a salad "Olivier" , in which was everything we love – from grouse to veal tongue, and even with black caviar. After the revolution, caviar was replaced with potatoes. And in the years of struggle against cosmopolitanism they came up with a truly Russian name, emphasizing the exquisite taste of the food. Without a doubt, I'll spoil myself on holidays with such a salad!

Salad "Stolichny" with smoked chicken


  • 300 g of smoked chicken meat
  • 200 g of boiled potatoes
  • 100 g carrots
  • 50 g fresh cucumbers
  • 100 g of pickled cucumbers
  • 100 g of peas
  • 150 g of mayonnaise
  • 3 boiled eggs
  • greens: coriander, parsley, dill (to taste)


  • A professional cook smokes chicken thighs in his own smokehouse, but you can, as you know, speak modestly. The main thing is that you have a smoked chicken, which can be cut quickly into medium cubes.
  • Boil potatoes – a little softer than "al dente". It is better to boil it in a uniform, and to clean already then: so it turns out much more tasty. Cut the potatoes into cubes the size of dice. Similarly, do with carrots, eggs, salted and fresh cucumbers.
  • All this mix with peas and season with homemade mayonnaise, quite simple in cooking: carefully razor mustard with egg yolks and salt, gradually introduce olive oil, without intermixing the mass with a whisk, mixer or even a fork.
  • This is the best variation of a salad with chicken , which I have tried! We thank Master Aram Mnatsakanov for such a simple, but at the same time refined recipe. Expect to replenish the festive menu from a true chef and do not forget to suggest an interesting recipe to your loved ones!
